Yesterday afternoon was the Memorial Service for a friend. It was a beautiful service and the church was packed. The minister did a wonderful job and Don's stepchildren spoke and shared their memories of him. I was really touched by all the good things that they said.
Don was known for his kindness which is a wonderful thing to be remembered for, don't you think?
I did not go down to the reception afterwards as I had to leave shortly for another event.
Poetry Center's first meeting of the year was last night and one of the poets picked me up which I really appreciated. He is very kind to do that and goes out of his way to do so.
As usual, it was a good session and lots of fun. We get serious work done but with lots of humour which I really like.
There were fifteen people there which is good for a new season. Many of the same faces but some new ones.
It is a mix of young people and older folk and it is good to have new voices to listen to.
All in all, a busy day for me. Unfortunately again I did not sleep.
I wish I could solve this problem of sleep!
